Good use of depth of field. I do wish that you would have pushed the blue pots all the way over to the left side so you would end-with two photos--an in focus and an out-of-focus photo.

Hello Patrick!

I knew I broke a photographic rule here by centering the subject but I thought I could get away with it because to me everything in the photograph is quite well balanced. Of course I should have taken variations, like the one you suggest, so I had more options to choose from!
